SPIRIT ME GENTLY TO THE SEA

83.5 71 cm, Oil on Linen, 2013

New Zealand's endemic Longfin Eel are becoming evermore scarce in our rivers.
Here the River Goddess (Wahine Atua) guides the eel to the sea so she may have the chance to breed. These eel can live to over 100 years and can weigh up to 24kg.
